The seller’s mortgage takes priority over the wraparound loan, which means if the seller doesn’t make the mortgage payments, the bank could foreclose. The buyer owns property subject to someone else’s mortgage—the seller’s. Which means if the seller defaults, the buyer could end up losing the home. Buyers who can’t qualify for a mortgage or don’t want the hassle with the paperwork may benefit from a wraparound loan. Sellers having trouble selling a property with an existing mortgage or looking to convert equity into cash flow may be a good fit for a wraparound mortgage.30 August 2021
